Oh yes... this is how I spent the 80s, more or less.

I need to send a congratulation card to my speccy. It is nicely packaged 
next to my ZX81 up in Stockholm.

The wonder of the machine was that it was graspable: all aspects were 
more or less known, from the hardware over the assembler to the limited 
operating system. One could in principle understand it completely, no 
aspects were secret or inaccessible.

This kind of machine made you very aware of the importance of optimizing 
code. Kids today don't know how good they have it and waste so much
